Nagarkot is the most beautiful hilltop close to Kathmandu where awaits views of 8 highest mountains in the world. It is a medium uphill ride from Bhaktapur and around 2 hours to reach Nagarkot but this trip isn’t about uphill and everything about downhill.
This cycle ride is all about adrenaline rush you feel from the downhill trips you do from Nagarkot to 3 different destination and in three different directions. You along with your team of riders and mechanic will be hauled to the top of the hill which is above 7000 ft or 2195 meters from the sea level. Every time you complete the trip you will be driven back to the same initiation point but each time you will be heading for different track. All together we will do 3 downhill rides in the day.
The first trip which is easy and is a practice trip and get you going and pump you up for the entire day. The trip would not take more than half an hour and it ends in Bhaktapur. A vehicle waiting in the city will again drive you back to Nagarkot. The second trail would be to Bhaktapur via Changu narayan. This is a notch difficult from the earlier trip and a little longer as well. Surrounded by beautiful forest of pine and rhododendron is followed by beautiful terrace farm of the season and scattered hut and the shrine of Changu Narayan. The final trail is longer and technical than the prior trips. The entire time for the third trip can be from 45 minutes to an hour. Most of the trip is in the dense forest surrounding Nagarkot. With beautiful view of the landscapes we reach the banks of Indravati river.
This tiring yet intense downhill ride intermingled with nature and mountains in perfect element. It makes it not only just is not downhill ride but the downhill ride.
